Fresh from his success at the Royal Court with The Woods, Pentabus commissioned award-winning playwright Robert Alan Evans to pen their autumn tour which has been seen in village halls and studio theatres in recent weeks, and comes to Ledbury's Market Theatre on Wednesday, November 27 and to Vowchurch and Turnastone Village Hall on Thursday, November 28.

In a peaceful Norfolk village three people are seeking happiness. But as the harvest moon fills and the party begins, ancient forces are brought to life. While Tony and Mike get trapped in the tunnels below the village, Gill’s plan for revenge turns extremely nasty.

A darkly comic journey through 24 hours in the life of a village called Little Bevan, this new play by Robert Alan Evans promises live music, storytelling and the spirit of a 10th century saint.

The Tale of Little Bevan has been created in collaboration with village hall promoters and rural communities across Norfolk and Suffolk - listening to their experiences, thoughts and concerns about living in rural villages in the 21st century.

Pentabus Artistic Director, Sophie Motley, said: "We’re thrilled to be working with village hall promoters in collaboration with Robert Alan Evans. Rob has listened, explored and responded to village life in East Anglia with this, funny and engaging romp of a play, exploring loneliness, community and the penchant for mystery evident in many rural communities.’

Owen Aaronovitch, Annie Grace and Andy Peppiette are the cast of three touring to 25 rural venues and studio theatres with The Tale of Little Bevan. To book at Vowchurch, call 07880 505761, for Ledbury, call 07967 517125, or visit to book online.
